Pre-test Buddy Support

Zemia “Barracuda” Garrett (sunglasses) poses with Judy “Striker” Gompf just before Striker takes her Orange Belt test. Barracuda is a Purple Belt working on her Blue. And did her support help? Of course. These two ladies have been friends from their high school days at Laguna Beach where they both played softball. They’re really athletes and fearsome fighters. Check back next week to see if Striker passed her test.
